Tuesday, March 16, 2010

For this New Sounds, English progressive-folk musician Jim Moray performs in our studio. Moray promises to take us on a folk adventure, riding the wave of the English folk resurgence, via guitar and piano. Also, listen to re-imagined folk songs from the Imaginary Village collection and Irish repertoire with Afro-Brazilian grooves from James Shipp’s Nós Novo. Plus, Rachel Unthank together with her sister Becky, are the Unthanks, whose kaleidoscope of unlikely instruments coupled with unsentimental storytelling forge links between folk worlds old, new and other. And much more.
